Dr. Lorna Dino
POSITION AND AFFILIATION DURING THE PROGRAM:
Director, National Educators Academy of the Philippines
ARTICULATED VISION DURING THE PROGRAM:
Improvement of student performance through School-based Management System in Sorsogon
“[The poor performance of learners] implies the need for stronger and more concrete support to the education of school administrators, parents, LGUs, and other stakeholders.”
As the former Schools Superintendent of the Department of Education – Division of Sorsogon, she has made efforts on the implementation of School-Based Management System in public schools. She believes that decentralization and employing participative management in the public school system, wherein Assistant Superintendents, Supervisors, and School Heads are given freedom to plan for their own school programs, inspire and maximize the creativity and dedication of public school officials and contribute to the improvement of public school education. Aside from this, she has been a proponent of Education Summits where education stakeholders (public officials, teachers, parents, etc.) convene to discuss and increase ownership of education issues, and develop a plan of action.
Dino has been working for the Department of Education since 1997. She holds an Ma.Ed. in Administration and Supervision, and a Ph.D. on Education Management.
